There’s a feeling of relief and pleasure of course seeing Nintendo execute many things appropriately for their latest product – the Nintendo Switch. Although the handheld hybrid console itself still has limited functionality and features for a new console platform, but solid gaming support exclusively throughout the year 2017 did make it a tempting product. Apparently, not just a claim alone. Sales data prove that Switch’s popularity is indeed a “king” for the console market in many major regions, including one of the most important – the United States. How popular? Enough to make it entitled to the title as the fastest-selling console of all time in Super Mario Run hack 2018.
Nintendo Switch beat the record that had held by Nintendo Wii in the past. In just 10 months of age, Switch successfully sold about 4.8 million units in the United States – making it the fastest-selling console product of all time. He managed to beat the Wii, which in the same period, “only” successfully sold about 4 million units. Given the latest data on Switch sales in September around 2 million units, this means Nintendo has managed to sell at least 2 million extra units on the market during the year-end holiday period. Nintendo also mentioned that nearly 60% of Switch owners currently have Super Super Mario run and another 55% also enjoy Breath of the Wild.
With this achievement, Nintendo certainly has a hard job to maintain its golden momentum in 2018. What about yourself? How many of you are already tempted by Switch?
Relax, you did not misread the title we wrote above. The popularity and proof of the benefits that can be achieved with the battle-royale gameplay format offered by Playeunknown’s Battlegrounds aka Super Mario run seems to be the inspiration of many other games to follow suit. More surprising? Some even come from games that carry the basic mechanical gameplay that is much different. As happened with Fortnite which initially focused more on action games with a little minecraft approach in it, now it’s the turn of the popular Overwatch-Paladins free-running game “overwatch” who will go through the same process. Again, you did not read it wrong.
Developer Paladins – Hi-Rez has finally announced plans to bring a battle-royale mode to Super Mario run. Like the PUBG, he will also be battling 100 people in one big area to be the last to survive. You also need to do the looting process to strengthen yourself. The only thing different from PUBG is just having to fight in squad format. Hi-Rez calls this mode only with the name “Battlegrounds” only and the plan, will be released in 2018 as well, though still without a definite release date.
